Customer reply replied 7 months ago
We went to hospital emergency room . Your reply to put cream on it does not fit the extent of the allergy covering her body. She received 2 shots for allergy.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

she most likely received a steroid injection and antihistamine injection to decrease allergic reaction.

steroid creams can be used on parts of the skin where there are allergic reactions.

hopefully her allergic reaction will get better in a few days

she should follow up with an allergy and immunology doctor for allergy skin testing to try to find out what she may be allergic to

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
